The UFC interim light weight champion Justin Gaethje has termed recently retired former UFC champion Conor McGregor a Legend and is expecting him to a make a comeback.
Justin Gaethje was quoted as saying that he expects Conor to return to Octagon once he manages to beat UFC lightwieght champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Justin Gaethje said this while speaking with ESPN MMA.
In a segment of the show, Conor McGregor’s name came up. The interviewers asked Gaethje if he buys the whole ‘Conor retirement’ thing and he had quite a lot to say about that matter.
Gaethje said, “I think he’ll fight again, I really do. I think he should wait for the winner between me and Khabib. If I win he should definitely come back. But if Khabib wins I don’t know and I’m not sure about that.”
Gaethje said, “He’s a legend man. Whatever he did was legendary status and I’ll never take that away from him. He deserves credit and he’s accomplished so much in this sport, what every fighter wants to attain. So hats off to him and I can’t wait to punch him in the face.”
